Cllr Lorraine Hall

Electoral Area: Dún Laoghaire

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council

Cllr Lorraine Hall

I’m Lorraine Hall and I was elected as a Councillor on my first outing in the 2019 Local Elections.

I live in Dún Laoghaire with my fiancé and two small children.  I care deeply about our community and I want to see Dún Laoghaire thrive into the future. If re-elected to the Council for a second term, my priorities will be:

  1. More affordable housing so more people can live locally
  2. A vibrant local economy including a better night time economy
  3. More play & recreational facilities for children and teens
  4. Investment in better public transport and safe cycling
  5. Tackling antisocial behaviour for safer streets and communities

I’ve worked hard for my community since I was elected in 2019. People contact me every week and I do my best to help resolve their issues. I  work closely with a number of resident associations, business groups and tidy towns organisations in my area.  I’m also a member of the Dún Laoghaire Town Team and the Local Policing Committee.

My proudest achievements as a Councillor include:

  • campaigning for the Living Streets project in Dún Laoghaire
  • organising and delivering Dún Laoghaire’s first St. Patrick’s Day Parade in 50 years
  • securing €150,000 for the skatepark on the West Pier in Dún Laoghaire
  • securing funding for the Dún Laoghaire Comedy & Storytelling Festivals
  • proposing the street art in Dún Laoghaire
  • campaigning for Maternity Leave for Councillors and working to secure its introduction, and
  • representing Fine Gael on the Citizens’ Assembly for a Directly Elected Mayor in Dublin

I’ve had a longstanding interest in politics and current affairs.  I worked as a Policy and Research Officer for former Taoiseach, Enda Kenny TD, as a Press Adviser for former Minister for Justice, Alan Shatter TD, and a Special Adviser for former Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht, Heather Humphreys TD.

After politics, I worked for Ibec and Hume Brophy for a number of years. I currently work as a full time Councillor.
